Are You a Woman Called to Preach?

All women interested in excellence in preaching are invited to attend a one-day Women Preaching Workshop on Saturday, April 18 from 9:30 to 3:00 p.m. at First Baptist Church, New London. Reservations are limited to 50 participants.

This exciting workshop is a new opportunity encouraged by our Region for women called to preach the Gospel and supported by the Silver-Bean Fund.

The Rev. Dr. Patricia Batten, Adjunct Professor of Preaching at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, will be our leader for the day. Until 2007, when called to GCTS, Dr. Batten was the full-time pastor of a church in Maine where attendance in worship and Bible study increased and she created a Sunday school curriculum. Currently Dr. Batten provides pulpit supply in area churches and preaches regularly at the Hope Community Church in Newburyport, Ma. Her scholarly interests include narrative preaching, creativity in preaching and preaching with relevance.

The day’s inspiration will be based on Philippians 4:2-7. Dr. Batten writes: “The workshops will be based on one passage of scripture. We’ll dig into the passage and apply it specifically to women in ministry with an emphasis on women who preach. At the end of the day you should have the makings of a sermon or even a sermon series (or Sunday school lesson) in Philippians. I want to be practical to your life and ministry. You’ll get a refresher course in Preaching 101 along the way.”

We will be sending out more information and if you know of women in your area who might like to attend please pass the word along! This conference is for any woman who feels the call to preach! Registration is only $5.00; lunch is included!

For any questions or to register please contact either: Rev. Linda Bolton,, 603-267-7154 or Rev. Dale Louise Nichols,, 603-542-8546, Conveners.

For those of you who haven’t yet read this month’s ABC/VNH newsletter (drum roll please) your 2014 donations exceeded the Region’s goal of raising $15,000! 

The total is just over $25,000 received for last year’s Annual Appeal.

We are so very thankful (and excited!) about this outpouring of blessing from you. We’re also looking forward to how we can use this money to grow God’s kingdom in the year ahead.

Thank you!
